Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Cyber-adultery: it’s all the rage! At the beginning of the pandemic, one online adultery site
went from 14,500 to 17,000 new users. Then just last week it was running 21,000 —and
that’s per day. This is not a joke. Their tagline is “Life is short. Have an affair.” I remind
you: these are married people.
Both men and women have streamed to this site, arranging cyber-trysts. And of course,
some of them become physical. And why is this important? With people locked in their
homes, divorces are spiking! In the USA alone, 1/3 more people actively sought divorce, in
a country with an almost 50% divorce rate already.
And the cultural carnage is everywhere.
The Lord Jesus Christ spoke directly to this, cyber or not: “But I say unto you, That
whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her
already in his heart” (Matthew 5:28). Long before it’s a physical issue, it’s a heart issue.
Rather than control their hearts, people are letting their feelings destroy their future —and
families. There has never been a better time to bring back Jack Chick’s tract, The Royal
Affair. It shows adultery for the sin that it is, and it calls people to repent and turn to God.
No one is immune. Not even King David. God worked through David to slay Goliath and
defeat the Philistines in many battles. He could have had almost anything he wanted. But
he desired someone that was forbidden to him: another man’s wife. As it says in The Royal
Affair: “David thought they were alone… But the most sophisticated equipment in the
universe was recording everything!”
No one gets away with anything. And even if people do not discover their names in an
online database, God has recorded it all. God doesn’t miss a thing. But God provided for all
people, even adulterers, to be forgiven, saved, and to start a new life with Christ. That’s all
in this tract.
There are so many today whose parents never taught them to live godly. They say, “Why
not? If it feels good, do it!” It never occurred to them that there is a God who keeps records.
In Christ Jesus, and for His service,
When King David repented of his sin with Bathsheba, God forgave him. Repent, and God will forgive you, too!
